Hi everybody!I have a question about Wordfast and the management of terminology. I already know how to create a glossary and insert terms in it during a translation with WF. But is it possible for me to create my own glossary and insert it in WF, so that I don't have to insert everytime a single new term from a translation?
Thank you very much!))

Dear Vito,

Do you mean Wordfast Classic or Wordfast Pro?

Please have a look here: http://wordfast.net/wiki/Using_Excel_or_Word_Glossaries


HTH,

You can use Excel to create a two-column table (source terms in left column, target terms in right column). Save it as Unicode text (important!) and you'll have a ready-to-use Wordfast Classic glossary. If you're using Wordfast Pro, you can import that text file into a Pro terminology list.

In the following video clip (length: 02:37), you can see how to do it in practice:

Narration is in Finnish, but it's easy to follow even if you don't understand the language.

Just open any good text editor and go on typing in your terms in pairs as follows:
Code:
source term tab translation



Save the file as UTF-16LE and engage in WFC or import to WFP depending on what you use.

Here is a short presentation in Czech (in the need use GoogleTranslate on site)

In Wordfast you can propagate (translate expressions) terminology automatically.
